Sketch Challenge - Just Believe

Today I stamped with the Stampin' Addicts Sketch Challenge and my favorite Stampin' Up! set Just Believe. I used a technique called Misting with Markers, where I colored the rubber with various colors Markers and then misted it with a fine mist water bottle before stamping it onto my Very Vanilla cardstock. You can vary the water colored look of the stamped image by the amount of water that you mist onto the rubber. It's a great way to add variation and colors to a solid stamp image. It also works with the WaterColor Wonder Crayons.

After I put my card together, I went back and added some touches of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to several of the flowers and leaves images with my Two Way Glue Pen as the adhesive. My Technique Club did several Glitter Techniques this month and since then I can't stamp a card without adding glitter to it! I warned my ladies that they would be going home with lots of sparkle EVERYWHERE but I don't think they realized how true that would be! After they finished their cards and projects every one of them was dazzling and glittery. I'm sure my room will be sparkly forever.

What do you think - to Glitter or Not to Glitter? What is your favorite embellishment that you like to add to every card you stamp?!
